Very satisfying atmosphere from the interest level of the job tasks to the personality of each individual coworker.
Managers are quite helpful in areas of procedure and reference material. The nature of the work itself keeps the tasks intriguing and exciting.

Northrop Grumman is a great company with core values that include excellence, transparency, diversity and inclusion, leadership and high-bar performance
Pros
Managers create a healthy work environment
Cons
Managers create an unhealthy work environment, micromanagement, apparently in response to directives from the customers, it was really a surprise to me because it was quite opposite of my most experience with the company

I have enjoyed my time at Northrop Grumman. My manager was great to work for and always gave us the opportunity to learn more. There is also a lot of chance to move up.

Work-life balance has improved. Overall it's a good company. They do train and try to sustain employees. With what is going on today they have a challenge.

I've worked at three different NG locations and I feel managers want employees to advance their careers. I appreciate the performance review methods and the competitive salary.

Pros- Work/life balance- very flexible and understanding. Education assistance- excellent program

Cons- No opportunities for advancement unless you're 'in' with people/groups. Compensation is not good compared to similar organizations. Far too many employees who only delegate.


NG's mantra should be- It's not what you know, it's who you know

Overall, the company isn't that bad. Culure is clickly, managers are hit and miss and they are stretched thin on tasks, the pay sucks. I was in finance/business management and my salary sucked. I referred a friend into the engineering group and his salary didn't match the work he was doing. I had few other friends in different areas who too had lower than average salaries.

I was shoved in last minute, so I don't blame them for me not having much to do. I spent most of my time making sure things were up to date on spreadsheets and doodling on sticky notes. Paid well though.

Been with NG for almost 5 year. I'm not impressed with their management style. Working on a customer site, you're very disconnected from headquarters, so have the time you don't know what's going on the company.

The company offers a broad range of work in defense contracting as well as in the commercial space sector. Many opportunities to move around. Benefits are typical for a company of this size.
